Rockstar Games have revealed that the Diamond Casino and Resort has had a new shipment of diamonds in GTA Online and here’s how to get them in a heist. 

For years, GTA players questioned Rockstar about whether or not they would be able to swing open the doors on the Casino that sits by the racetrack in North Vinewood. In July, the developers finally made it possible with the introduction of the Diamond Casino and Resort.

The gaming paradise has been nothing short of a success for Rockstar as it has helped breathe new life into GTA Online, with player counts seeing a huge increase. Though, one other question remained  – would players be able to rob the Casino? The Diamond Casino Heist was then made available in December, but there was one thing missing – the ability to steal diamonds.

GTA players have the option of doing their heist quietly or forcefully.

Rockstar changed that on February 13, 2020, with the introduction of Diamonds as an asset to the heist. To make things better, the spawn rates on the stealable goods were altered, making it easier to get diamonds. The first event lasted between February 13 to February 20, although they are now back! 

If you’ve never completed the heist before, the first attempt at the heist will see the game nudge towards diamonds being your target instead of the cash, gold, and artwork options. The diamonds are incredibly lucrative if you get alive with them as the biggest payout is over $3 million – though, that will have to be split with your team. 

Though, if you have completed the heist before, it is still seemingly possible to get your hands on the mega payout. As of the game’s March 18 update, Diamonds are once again available to loot in the Casino heist – so get hacking and cracking in GTA Online.

How to get diamonds more than once in GTA Online’s Casino heist

Just because getting the diamonds for a second time is only a small chance, that doesn’t mean that it is impossible.

GTA YouTuber MrBossFTW showcased a method that can trigger them again, though you will have had to complete the heist one each of the robbery options – Stealthy, The Big Con, and Aggressive. 

Completing each of these options will give you the chance to cancel a heist by calling Lester if you don’t get the vault contents that you’re looking for. It’ll cost you $25,000 each time you cancel because that is the set-up fee, but you can seemingly get diamonds again by re-rolling on what the game might offer up.

Of course, it might be a case of trial and error for you, meaning that it might take a few tries to trigger the diamonds again, but it still possible to grab them a second time.

It is unknown if the percentage chance of grabbing them will shrink even further once the event ends, so it’s probably best to try it before Rockstar make them unavailable to find again. Anyway, best of luck!

GTA 6 teaser speculation grows after players uncover more strange files in RDR2

Fans have spotted more out-of-place files in Red Dead Redemption 2 that could point toward either GTA 6 or rumors that the re-release of Grand Theft Auto V on PS5 and Xbox Series is on a new engine.

Rockstar has been mum on any information regarding the long-awaited announcement of GTA 6, but fans can hardly contain their excitement, combing through files of other games to find some clue for what the company is working on.

Now, with GTA Online players spotting code potentially referencing the RAGE Engine used in Red Dead Redemption 2, fans think there could be some connection between RDR2 and the next Grand Theft Auto.

As such, players have peeked through RDR2’s files and discovered some things that seem wildly out of place, even for the wild west.

What are these weird GTA-like files doing in Red Dead Redemption 2?

GTA Forums member ‘rollschuh2282’ noted that they found parachute-related files hidden in Red Dead. The crazy part is that the file doesn’t exist in GTA V.

“Funnily that [[email protected]@pack] animation file does not exist in V,” they wrote and provided a photo of all the parachute animations in GTA 5.

Lo and behold, the file with “pack” in its name was not among them, meaning it was unique to Red Dead 2’s code. But what would parachute files be doing in a game about cowboys?

Modern gun files don’t make sense in RDR2. Unless…

Fans believe this is either a sign towards the next-gen port of GTA V being in Red Dead Redemption 2’s engine or GTA 6.

Unfortunately, it’s unclear if the files had existed since the game’s PC release or were only recently added in a newer update.

This isn’t the first time fans have discovered weird files in RDR2. As Dexerto previously reported, weapon code for two variants of the Browning pistol, an L1A1 rifle and AK-47 were found back in late December.

In any case, more and more evidence is mounting that something is brewing at Rockstar and it isn’t just hot coffee. Only time will tell what the future holds, especially as GTA V’s re-release draws nearer.
